included reports of a bin laden terror cell present in the united states at that point. he claims white house officials were dismissive of the information. he writes some of the administration considered the warning to be bluster. an intelligence official told me in interviews the neoconservative leaders were warning the white house that the cia had been fooled. according to this theory, bin laden was planning an attack to distract them from saddam hussein who they saw as a greater threat. intelligence officials protested the idea of bin laden conspireing with mr. hussein saying it was ridiculous. the neoconservative suspicions were carrying the day. the cia prepared an analysis to accept the danger from bin laden was real. that exert in the new york times. he'll join us on "morning joe" to talk about this piece and his book, "500 days." we'll ask how he came across this and how it stacked up against other terror warnings that came across the president's desk at that time. >>> we were reminded on the eveover 9/11 that terrorist continues. al qaeda's number two leader in yemen was killed
, the israelis do not believe that there is as much time as you well know as the united states believes. what can we do to persuade prime minister netanyahu not to take preemptive action because there is more time, or do you agree there is more time for sanctions to work? >> i would agree with secretary clinton. i agree with that. additionally, the p5 plus 1 negotiations, i understand, have resumed. i think what needs to be done candidly and i have suggested this privately to the administration, i think we have to learn whether the supreme leader wants an agreement and if he does, what it will take. it may well be that the united states has to bilaterally step up and take use of this opportunity, to interface dir t directly with the supreme leader. i understand israel's position. i also know that the united states has been working hand and glove with israel, in many different ways, many of them classified, so there has been really unbridled cooperation with israel. so, i think we have done everything that we should be doing. >> and senator, just briefly, you're suggesting direct talks between th
, and that's, of course, a key swing state, believe that barack obama was not born in the united states. so this jocular, sarcastic reference to it recently by governor romney is not a joke. that this is something you can keep igniting and keep stirring up. aren't you astounded that a huge percentage of actual voters in the republican party in ohio, a reasonable state, believe the guy wasn't born in this country? >> sure. and same percentage -- same type of percentage believe he's still a muslimeen though it's clear that he never was and never has been. look, there are still warring flags out there and to my flends and colleagues in pennsylvania, don't take anything for granted. the voter i.d. law if it stands is going to hurt us. there's no question about that, chris. i still believe the debates are going to be a factor and governor romney can recover in the debates. lastly, don't believe for a minute that they're not going to spend any money in pennsylvania. the super pac will come in the last six or seven weeks and try to swamp the state with ads. swamp the state. >> i agree. all those p
that as a man accepts his party's nomination for president of the united states, to be our commander in chief, he didn't even mention the war we were fighting, which will be our longest war, not to mention he didn't mention anything about veterans and our sacred obligation to them. i find it stunning. i find his comments in the aftermath of that stunning. his response to bill crystal's criticism and fox news' criticism of him, it's remarkable. what i have been talking about, martin, is what an exceptional president and commander in chief president obama has been. he's done exactly what he said he was going to do by ending a war in iraq, setting us on a path to hand over authority in afghanistan by 2014. making sure that we refocused our efforts on going after al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, decimating al qaeda. you saw the news yesterday what happened in yemen. proving the mission to eliminate osama bin laden from the face of this earth, and also and importantly, this is something i'm not sure romney and ryan understand, honoring the commitment we have to our veterans when they return.
by how scared the president of the united states looked, how disoriented he looked, how it seemed like they did not know where they were going. and i just want to do a hat tip right here, which, again, in this environment you probably aren't supposed to do. you know what? while george bush looked scared and disoriented that day, that day only, rudy giuliani stepped up. and he became america's mayor on that day. and he kept people advised of what was going on and was a great leader for that time. >> it was one of the great acts of spiritual and popular leadership that we'll ever see. and, you know, mayor giuliani is a big churchillian. but he was reading and looking at in those days and weeks a book by john lucash called "five days of may" in may of 1940 between churchill and chamberlain and halifax. and it was a marvelous case of leadership of being there. >> well, and like churchill and we're not comparing him to churchill, but for that time, though, like churchill, part of it was leadership, part of it was a great act. telling people, and by the way, that's what kept the british peop
you. god bless the united states of america. >> here's allen west's interpretation of that ad for his audience at the republican jewish coalition in bow contaca florida last night. >> they want to bring out an old soviet marxist theme called forward. >> yeah. yeah. you heard them. allen west had the full approval of his audience with that. including the members of the audience who are currently being kept alive by a socialist program called medicare. but allen west wasn't there just to tear down the president and decode his soviet marxist soviet socialist messaging. he was there to give republicans their marching orders. >> we are going to go forward. >> what? allen west just finished explaining that the word forward is a soviet markist soviet socialist something or other and then he used that very same word in telling his audience what to do? of course, his audience immediately jumped out of their seats are you crazy how do you expect us to listen to you. and of course the republican jewish coalition bouncers must have thrown him out of the room and told him to never insult their int
. is that any reason to make some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention there was a dutiful feel to it, and as you s
of events in far off places that have an enormous impact here because the united states is in the eyes of so many people who are opposed to our system of government and our alliances, the devil incarnate and today this is a very sophisticated, cold blooded, widespread attack carried out with the most chilling kind of efficiency on several of the great nerve centers of our system of government and our way of life. >> you've been watching an msnbc living history event, 9/11 as it happened. good day. i'm chris jansing. at ground zero are the footprints of the twin towers that once stood tall. this morning hundreds of relatives of the more than 2,700 people killed at ground zero are gathered along with police and firefighters, to hear the annual reading of the names of the fallen. on this 11th anniversary of the attacks, only family members, not politicians, appeared at the podium to read those names. at the white house, the president and first lady observed a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck the world trade center. that was followed by a wreath ceremony at the pen
for the president of the united states and commander in chief, as mr. romney is? >> it's inconceivable to me, al, that the american people would take romney seriously after what he did at the convention. because the american people, the first job of the president, is to make the american people safe, to defend the country, to protect the country. and for him to come up there and not even talk about what's going on in a whole bunch of places, whether you want to talk about syria or libya or all the places that the president has had to stand up, make decisions and stand behind those decisions and come out beautifully on most of them, i -- i think that romney is afraid that he can't do it. that's why he doesn't say anything about it. there's no other explanation except that he's afraid. he knows he ought to be talking about it. >> now, richard, romney's team, 17 of his 24 advisers served under the bush administration. and the reason that becomes relevant today is kurt eichenwald in the new york times came out with intelligence briefings in 2001. may 1st president bush was informed. june 22nd, attac
this race come down to? >> i think it comes down to who north dakotans believe will go to the united states senate and every day fight for them. it's interesting, ed. the farm bill, essential air service, help for devils lake with their infrastructure needs, flood relief in minot, diversion in fargo, i mean i could just go around the state of north dakota the farm bill, essential air service, help for devils lake with their infrastructure needs, flood relief in minot, diversion in fargo, i mean i could just go around the state of north dakota and tell you what people care about. it's not what congressman burg is talking about. >> the ad running against you put out by the rnc in the state says you're for raising taxes. on who? >> i don't know. i was with a group of seniors today and i asked them, i said how many of you believe the 30-second commercials? not one happened was raised. not one hand. people are tuning them out because they know they are dishonest. they know they are not truthful. they know they are trying to scare people. and you and i have talked about this. i have asked for sev
of the united states. it is one thing to screw up your nominating convention. like this. it's another thing to deny you screwed it up and said you did something that you did not do. when you say you went to the american legion and gave a speech about policy ideas, you did not do that. the press does follow you. you were right about that. the candidate will try to make up for this with a speech on the 9/11 anniversary. if he tries to continue to deny that he made the mistake in the first place, he will have compounded this error gravely. >>> this has been a pretty great campaign season but there will never be a season like 2010. if we don't get what we want, we'll start shooting. christina o'donnell, not a witch. but remember joe miller versus lisa murkowski? i have found myself thinking of what we learned on our show's trip up to alaska that fall to cover joe miller and his supporters. >> good luck, you guys. >> we disagree with that. >> she voted to confirm eric holder. >> why are you against that? what's he done against guns? >> what hasn't he done against guns? let's look at what his vot
in that war if you became the president of the united states. it is one thing to screw up your nominating convention. like this. it's another thing to deny you screwed it up and said you did something that you did not do. when you say you went to the american legion and gave a speech about policy ideas, you did not do that. the press does follow you. you were right about that. the candidate will try to make up for this with a speech on the 9/11 anniversary. if he tries to continue to deny that he made the mistake in the first place, he will have compounded this error gravely. n? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. like the elephant on my chest... he thought he was having a heart attack. she said, "take an aspirin, we need to go to the hospital." i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

of this great country of ours, the spirit of service that drives this department, that drives the united states of america. we remember men and women like the marine major who joined others in rushing to the most heavily damaged areas. they struggled for air amidst thick, black smoke as they pulled the wounded, who were trapped under mounds of debris. when asked by a reporter for his name -- >> there's a lot going on today. i want to transition the audience, if you will, to reno, nevada where the republican nominee, governor mitt romney is speaking before the national guard conference. let's listen. >> we honor them, and we honor those who secure our safety even to this day. we honor the men and women of the national guard f. for 375 years wherever your countrymen have encounted threat and danger, you have willingly have gone. wherever the cause of freedom has called, you have answered. assist the threats to liberty have emanated from distant lands, you've served far from home and family. the nation has asked much more from you, but you never faltered and wavered from that mission, from that mo
information in may that there was a cell in the united states that was planning to strike. they were getting information that it was going to be a big operation. there were going to be mass casualties. one of the big problems you had, though, was getting past the level of disbelief. you have to remember that the bush administration came in. the republicans had been out of the white house. during that time national security went from countries to being about guys on the tops of mountains in afghanistan. they just didn't buy it. so when you had the cia coming in and saying al qaeda, the pentagon pushed back and said, no, no. it's a fake. bin laden isn't a real threat. he's just trying to gin stuff up so we don't pay attention to iraq. >> kurt, speaking of iraq, one of the things that i'm still trying to figure out is how exactly and why exactly we ended up going to war with iraq. can you take us behind the scenes in that decision-making process? >> the decision-making process was really ugly. there are a few things that come out in "500 days." one is that the defense intelligence agency did an
